If you're visiting Office Online to check out Office 2007 (and you are, right?), there's one thing in all the marketing materials you won't find: the obituary for Clippy. The loved/hated Office Assistant first included in Office 97 (he lost his default status in Office XP) is gone. Seriously. It's not even some buried Easter egg you can hunt for on the applications. Clippy's friends are gone as well. Long live Power Pup and Rocky. If you want to dive deeper into the history of Clippy and all his pals, Wikipedia has a nice entry.
Useful? Useless? I don't know, but I loved it :) It helped me so much in "far" 97..ahhh my first approach to Office. Bye bye Clippy!
Office System MVP since 2004
This is news? Well, give it a rest, will'ya
Thank God He is gone forever. I hates that little guy. It is about time Microsoft put him to bed.
If you miss him, you can download him as a free add-in: www.rjlsoftware.com/.../clippy
Some of us like clippy and the magician....hmmm now where to go for help in 2007???
I loved the cat! Gonna miss it... Can't say it I used it for help, it was more of a on-screen stress relief. -Alex
I loved the power dog coming out of his kennel for the last 6 years and barking if i needed to do something.
although office 2007 trial looks good i immediately un-installed it and told microsoft why and will stay with the dog with windows 2000
As a member of SPCA, the dog and I got along just fine, and sadly I did not know he was being retained in a "kill" shelter. What a shame!
Worry not. I think the dog now lives with the professor somewhere in Florida.
I've been teaching Office in Adult Education Classes now for 3 years, everyone loved Clippy and friends. I was always particularly in love with the Robot.....loved to animate him from time to time. In office 2003 I got rid of my pal, didn't need him anymore. When I announced in my recent classes that Clippy would no longer be included in office 2007, they all went "Awwww". While some times a pain in the neck, and sometimes ammusing, we will all miss clippy and I,the robot. Lie in peace my friends .... Now BACK TO WORK ! P.S. Maybe you Gadget creators out there might revive clippy and friends as a cool gadget for Vista ????
oh I will miss him.;(
I´m not so sad about him, he had been going on my nerves for too long....... now I´m running OpenOffice Portable, not so much crashes and no office utilities chattering all the time and staying onschreen even after closing Word (maybe I´m a little paranoid...)
I'm shocked. He was so young, and seemed healthy enough...but seriously, I really liked Clippy. I hope that there will still be animated characters as part of Help. Maybe you could rent The Simpsons?
Yes, it's too bad! He is one of the most helpful tools in Microsoft. He got me out of a lot of jams at work :)
